Installing EMBOSS in package format

EMBOSS can be installed on almost all Unix/Linux operating systems using the instructions above, but the package format can be far more convenient. A package is a precompiled set of binaries with installation instructions that can be set up on your system with a minimum of work. In some cases the package will check for the correct libraries and install those as necessary.

Brief instructions are given here for the packages of which we are aware. These are maintained separately from the main source tree and may also install some files in operating system standard locations instead of the locations used by the `raw' EMBOSS distribution. Please read the more detailed instructions that accompany each package.
